Research at the Division of Neurogeriatrics

Denna sida på svenska

We investigate neurodegenerative disorders from different perspec­tives, emphasizing the integration of basic neuroscience research with clinical research and molecular genetics.

Diseases that we are studying include Alzheimer Disease, Frontotemporal Dementia, CADASIL and Spinal cord injury. Research topics include metabolism of the amyloid β-peptide (Aβ), mitochondrial dysfunction, inflammation, protein aggregation, genetic and environmental risk factors as well as biomarkers

Research Groups
